How Long Is Eod School

Of the 4 workshops that attendees could attend the conference, in this post I will discuss the third: Drupal repository for joint consultation presented by Muñoz and Serrano Jordi Oriol Rico Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC).
This workshop explained the experience of the UPC for the selection of a content management system that solves your problems of management. Thus was born Bibliotécnica . Based on the core module of Drupal, they are adding modules and layers that allow the integration of tools such as UPC catalog , UPCommons the factory teaching resources, or FenixDoc for example.
workshop was a very technical. It explained why he opted for Drupal (basically because it is modular, flexible and also have a community of active development of software that allows to develop what is needed) addressed the use of taxonomies (group content), working with templates, or search shows (which raised the problem of duplicates). They also described their work with some of the Drupal modules as OpenSearch, which allows syndicate searches.

further explained that the flexibility of Drupal 2.0 allows utilities to add as comments users or the syndication of the latest acquisitions in LibraryThing. A highly enriching
no lack exposure that led to reflection questions as whether it is beneficial for students not to use taxonomies to find or that everything will come resolved by the browser, which is the form you are working with taxonomies and not the students, or about the high economic costs for the institutions to implement tools 2.0.
In this workshop you can highlight a phrase in the simple things are. Not have to look for complicated solutions, but simple and easy to apply. They set a good example.
